Learn a framework for preparing and delivering executive level presentations. With a particular focus on developing a sharp, engaging and memorable message for every presentation. These skills are designed for presenting to senior level, time-pressed executives. They can also be applied for client-facing presentations, public events when you represent the company, and in-house events where you need to deliver a clear message to your team. They are less applicable for technical presentations where the focus is on policy, procedure and technical details.
